What's an A FIST?
Either way, you need to show you've actually been to college, or are in college and work for big companies ahead of schedule due to personal talent before you can publish something like this.
Once you go to college, you'll appriciate how difficult it is to get things published. Even Ph.D.s will spend many years trying to get one book published (sending, rejecting, editing. sending rejecting editing etc.).
It even can take over a year to get an article in a magazine published if you are going to publish in a scholarly journal.

There are some very few exceptions to this as some have published without a college education, but from book reviews of one, it says that the author hasn't gone to college, and in the book it really shows.

Not about the age, but do you believe that you have the knowledge?


I think if you compare to USSR tanks, it helps explain why and how the USA developed its hardware.

You at least need to be on an official list. No one's going to take your word for anything.

I frankly don't care what they think.
I'm A FIST qual, and I'm going to write a book.
Thats the problem with people today, someones word isn't good enough.

Anyone here other that a tanker driven a tank? Anyone else here taken A FIST other than a tanker? Anyone here seen the been on the inside of a T-62 other than a tanker? Anyone here ever train in a Abrams Sim other then a tanker? Anyone played Steel Beasts or VBS other then a tanker?

I play VBS1 (Steel Beasts too...though I have no time for it now) and I'm not a tanker, not even an army guy-and there are a lot of others that play it.
FYI...VBS1 is on sale for civilians in Europe and the rest of the world...that is if were talking about the same VBS...because the last time I heard Coalescent wouldn't distribute it to civvies in America.

Can you explain please what is FIST.
Thank you.

Being inside a tank is no big achievement...our army has an "open doors days" every year and I attended a couple of times.
Don't get me wrong I ain't trying to put you down, it just seems to me that you're taking this to lightly, but then again I could be wrong.

Ahhh....
I still think that's not really enough for a serious book.
However, it might be enough for an intro to tanks for kids book if u have a good illustrator.
